At least 42 dead after 7.3 earthquake hits Nepal

People started rushing into an open ground after a fresh 7.3-magnitude earthquake struck Kathmandu, Nepal on Tuesday, May 12, 2015. At least 42 people have been killed and 1,006 injured in the Himalayan country and neighboring states, as many buildings already weakened by a much bigger quake last month were brought down. The earthquake was centered 68 kilometers (42 miles) west of the town of Namche Bazaar, close to Mount Everest and the border with Tibet, the U.S. Geological Survey said. It could be felt as far away as northern India and Bangladesh. (Sumit Shrestha/Zuma Press/TNS)
